JakewayThanks for the offer to "ship it to me and I'll take it off your hands!"
I'm going to take the rod to the shop I bought it from to make sure the correct guides are on the rod by comparing it to another Vapor in the same length and wt. I'm also going to compare the guides to a few other brands while there.This afternoon I went to a book store nearby and bought a pocket book on knots used for fly fishing with illustrations on 24 knots and tools for them. The blood knot and nail knot tools look helpful. Hopefully I'll find a knot that works best with my set up and have a few less hang up issues.Two more questions for you. I know, I know, you're probably asking yourself by now, will this guy ever run out of questions!.
How long does this Plio-bond take to set? Is it safe with both mono and floro?
